Ok. Yeah, that would make sense. I'll upload that.

Yeah. It wasn't labelled or as far as I remember. I'll go have a look
for it.

Ok. This is an interesting point. They are available in free formats
(Xvid AVI is debatable but it really doesn't matter), but the
archive.org ones for instance are transcoded down in quality.

So whilst my recording might be beautiful, it is rencoded at lower
quality settings in ogg/theora/vorbis and lower quality mp4.

If we end up doing, as you mentioned, compiling a disk of MFS talks, it
would be ideal to have the high quality versions of each talk encoded in
a free format.

> Tim, please you could check the details I've added.

I will do. I have a few updates on several of the videos as well:

I don't seem to have a copy of the Elmar Geese video. :(

Thanks for putting that together Michael!
